For this piece I did a acrylic underpainting and then did a oil painting final. I collaborated a bunch of photos taken around my farm to compose a Constable inspired landscape. Also I used a split-compliment color scheme of orange, blue green and blue violet. The trees I decided to create, which I discovered was quite difficult because of the need to make them symmetrical, and thus not naturalistic. All in all I think this painting came together pretty well.
